Are custom rule types not part of the new event_queue?  
(which, by the way, I think I like.)

a totally contrived example:

output alert_syslog: log_auth log_alert
output log_tcpdump: alerts.log
ruletype traffic 
{
	type log
	output log_tcpdump: traffic.log
}

traffic ip any any -> any any
alert tcp any any -> any 23 (msg: "sample alert";)

does not produce expected behavior.. the "sample alert" packets do not
appear in traffic.log, only in alerts.log.  So, I think to myself 
'self.. perhaps it only works on "alert" types.'  so I make "traffic"
an "alert" type (with output alert_fast: /dev/null  (YUCK!))..   same
behavior.   So....  help?

Thanks...
